Chances are, you can think of at least one woman in your life that you're amazed by. Whether it's your mother, your sister, your wife or your best friend that you admire, it's important to let them know on March 8 – International Women's Day. This holiday, which has been observed since 1911, was established at a time when there was still immense gender inequality. The female race has come a long way since then, but not without great strength and determination to overcome deep-rooted ideologies. Women have come a long way from the oppression that existed at that time, and these achievements deserve some attention. That's why this holiday provides the perfect opportunity to both express respect for the females in history who made a difference, while also demonstrating your appreciation for those close to you that you value.
